Not everyone is pleased with the new French law banning excessively thin models. The French government is putting legislation in place that will require models to produce a medical certificate with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 18 or over. Fashion houses and agencies that fail to adhere to the law may face six months in prison or a fine of 75,000 euros (about $81,000). 

Several high-profile names in the French fashion industry have taken issue with the law, according to WWD. Isabelle Saint-Félix, the general secretary of Synam, France’s union of model agencies, said international models shouldn’t have to contend with “a different system for different countries.” Paris-based stylist Simon Gensowski said, “Rather than body-shaming women with eating disorders, it would have been wise to reconsider current sample sizes.” (more…)

Watch Taylor Swift Prep Her Squad Before 1989 Tour Appearance

How does one prepare to make a guest appearance on Taylor Swift’s famously star-studded 1989 tour? Does she test your knowledge of her song lyrics? Make you perform for her cats while she judges your dance moves American Idol style? Apparently, none of the above according to a new video Karlie Kloss shared on YouTube.

In the rare behind-the-scenes look at Taylor’s tour, the pop star is actually warm, thoughtful and hilarious as she preps models like Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid and more for their big moment onstage. She gives them priceless tips to avoid falling and shows them exactly where to stand by recreating the stage using towels, floss and nail polish. We can only imagine how amazing (and effective) the prep session for the Bad Blood video must have been.

Kendall Jenner Just Shot Her Best Cover Yet for Vogue Brazil (Forum Buzz)

Following in the footsteps of Gisele Bündchen, Kendall Jenner has scored the cover of Vogue Brazil. It was only a matter of time, after Kendall’s fellow peer Gigi Hadid seems to be doing quite alright for herself too by currently fronting British Vogue. To our amazement, the Estée Lauder ambassador photographed wonderfully, wearing Christian Dior before the lens of Russell James. Flashing a warm, friendly and energetic smile, a joyful Kendall plays with her dark mane (with a little help from a wind machine) on the inviting new cover, which has the majority of us pleasantly surprised.

Watch: Miss Universe Host Accidentally Crowns the Wrong Winner

MissUniverse

Holy moly. The Miss Universe final just crowned the wrong winner and it’s possibly the most awkward television you’ll ever watch.

Host Steve Harvey wrongly read out Miss Colombia as the winner, who took the crown and bouquet and did her wave and tears thing, but her glory was short-lived when he backtracked and realised that he had made a mistake. 

Miss Colombia was demoted to runner-up with Miss Philippines, Pia Wurtzbach, instead taking her place as the official Miss Universe for 2015. Seriously, watch the videos (below). They’re cringeworthy as all hell. (more…)
